EPA Hydro-Fracking Hearing Begins In Binghamton, NY (tags)
9/13/10 - Binghamton, NY - EPA hearings discuss safety issues surrounding hydraulic fracturing, or "fracking" when related to pollution of groundwater. Fracking is the newest source for some natural gas pipelines like the one in San Bruno that recently exploded. Many older pipelines have serious safety concerns yet many more new pipelines are built each year due to expanded fracking of shale deposits without any clear oversight from federal regulators at PHMSA.
San Bruno - Natural Gas Pipeline Safety is a Myth! (tags)
San Bruno, CA - Following another deadly natural gas pipeline rupture and explosion, it becomes clear that there are few safety standards and the promises of safety made by natural gas pipeline operator corporations like PG&E, El Paso and others are nothing less than blatant deceptions of the public trust.

(Phone: 213-228-7000.) A professional staged-reading of a new play, with live music, by award-winning dramatist Rick Mitchell, directed by Hope Alexander, music by Max Kinberg. Through the Roof chronicles the adventures of two people who meet on a rooftop in the Lower Ninth Ward of New Orleans while escaping rising floodwaters from Hurricane Katrina. The pair inadvertently travel back in history, to New Orleans and California, and discover that race, gender, and natural catastrophe are never far removed. The play is based, in part, on recent interviews with disaster survivors (especially of Katrina), as well as New Orleans and California history. An audience talk-back follows the show. Produced by the Central Library (Literature and Fiction Dept.) and the College of Humanities, California State University, Northridge. The play reading is part of a California Stories project entitled: “Natural Disaster: California, New Orleans, the World” (www.calhum.org), and the project is supported, in part, by a grant from the California Council for the Humanities.

In-situ crop diversity, wild relatives & GE pollen contamination (tags)
In-situ (on site) conservation of crop biodiversity is another answer to the fallacy of genetic engineering (GMO/GE) monoculture crops promoted by biotech corporations. Wild relatives of crops like rice and maize can be intercrossed/introgressed to increase resistance to insect pests and "weed" competition. We only need to protect the wild relatives of crops like rice, potatoes and maize..

The New York Times: a proposal for ethnic cleansing in Iraq (tags)
While plans have been announced for Washington to erect a “sovereign” Iraqi regime by the middle of next year, this hollow exercise holds little prospect for ending a bitter conflict that is claiming the lives of American soldiers daily and creating growing political unrest in the US itself. Enter the New York Times with a modest proposal for a bloodbath. It advances what it terms a “three-state solution,” based on the partition of Iraq along ethnic and religious lines.

Politically Incorrect (tags)
It is politically correct to advocate condoms but every day the evidence increases that they do little to protect and may pose a very serious health risk. It is hard for the CDC and FDA to examine these risks as they have been so vocal in promoting condoms but could their silence lead to dire consequences. I for one having done exaustive research strongly feel so.
